The 2022 Annual Reading Challenge List Thread

2022 Reading Challenge List Thread

Welcome to our 13th Annual Reading Challenge!

The Annual Reading Challenge is neither a race, contest, nor an “exclusive club”, anyone can join! This is just a fun activity that some of us have enjoyed doing in the past. Many of us have found reading challenges to be an entertaining way to set goals for ourselves, get ideas for books, and see what others are reading.

This thread is for you to keep a running tally for your chosen challenge. Please state your goals at the top of your post (in the title line if you can), and then start your list in the body of your post. As you read books, edit your post to update your list of books read, or other challenge status.

Please Remember: No discussion posts in this thread. Please use the other thread for that. Non-List posts will be deleted or moved to the other thread.

Discussions & Ideas can be found here:


Post #2 of this thread is dedicated to a Table of Contents for all participants in this thread. Names will be added to this TOC in alphabetical order with a link to that individual’s post number from this thread.

Previous threads were for 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010

My goal is to buy fewer books than I read. And so end up with fewer unread books.
Last year I managed to reduce my TBR pile by 135 books!

I start 2022 with 756 books on my TBR pile.

Books removed from TBR

Read and Reading
  1. December 31st, 2021: Poor Tom is Cold by Maureen Jennings - £0.99 - 3/5 - 271pp
    OK, but a bit heavy handed in the plot setup
  2. January 5th: The Stainless Steel Rat by Harry Harrison - £1.99 - 5/5 - 145pp
    Most enjoyable silly SF
  3. January 7th: Naughty: Nine Tales of Christmas Crime by Steve Hockensmith - Free - 5/5 - 175pp
    Just what was advertised - fun Christmas Crime tales.
  4. January 8th: Four To Score by Janet Evanovich - Free - 3/5 - 203pp
    OK, but a bit silly. Discarded 11 other freebies in the series.
  5. January 11th: Strange Attractors by Jeffrey A. Carver - Free - 4/5 - 286pp
    An enjoyable adventure SF.
  6. January 15th: Interzone #218 (Sep/Oct 2008) - £2.26 - 3/5 - 143pp
    An OK collection of SF short stories.
  7. January 16th: Diamonds in the Sky edited by Mike Brotherton - Free - - 208pp

Maximum 150 books; biographies; reading list

If I fall into a theme or category outside my usual, I’ll add it.
  • Reduce my usual benchmark to 100 books, but with a maximum of 150 (rounded up to 13 per month - I can carry unread books forward, but can’t anticipate).
  • Switching from my usual choice of a topic to a genre instead, read 12 biographies (memoirs and autobiographies don’t count).
  • Read a pre-chosen list of quality owned books. Read

The motivating theme behind these three goals is to shake things up because what I was doing no longer worked. Links are to my Goodreads account.

My goal this year is again an even 100. I should try to bring the TBR down below 1,000; it's at 1,085 at the beginning of the year...

Rereads in default color, new reads in sienna

1. Dust by Elizabeth Bear 1/03
2. Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm Queen of the Dead by Richard Roberts 01/12

3. In Conquest Born (Audio) by C S Friedman 01/12
4. Wintersteel by Will Wight 01/16

I have a mix of reading goals for 2022, but mainly to put another "big" dent in my TBR. They include:
  • Catch up completely on the backlist of at least two autobuy authors.
  • Read at least three complete series.
  • Pick 10 “Must Read” books for the year from my huge digital TBR mountain (not including any new releases)

January 2022

February 2022

March 2022

April 2022

May 2022

June 2022

July 2022

August 2022

September 2022

October 2022

November 2022

December 2022
